Ice magic


I miss Japan’s amazing ice-cream vending machines.


they offer every flavour you can imagine (above is, left to right, grape sherbet, juicy muscat, chunky mandarin, matcha, chocolate mascarpone, choc nut crunch) for just a few coins.


But here’s an exciting *scoop* from my friend Sarah, Ben & Jerry’s is opening a store in Manly in September! That’s next month!

    the waffle looking one looks yummily interesting 😀

    owww these look delicious! Though I must admit, I have never eaten one in Japan…perhaps because I always travel to Tokyo in winter…
    Yum! they look so yum and so super kawaii!

    Amazing. (And also great for indecisive people like me who take ten years to decide what they want!) After staring at this post for ages, I’d say my first pick would be the matcha flavour! (Although chunky mandarin does good …)

    Lyn, i think the chocolate mascarpone sounds great too, it was always surprising to see mascarpone flavour in japan!

    Ebony, you must visit in the spring and eat cherry-blossom flavour ice-cream under a cherry tree! or in autumn for maple ice-cream under a japanese maple!

    Lee Tran, i just realised the matcha flavour is matcha latte, which sounds great! Soft cream vendors make all these flavours too. And black sesame. Yum

    Sarah, hooray! i can’t wait 🙂

    I love that ice cream! I expected it to be not as tasty because it came from a vending machine, but it’s really good!
